This special installation was carefully documented and scored with original music by John Orr Franklin (visit his website for a listen and downloads). This was a commission of Earth’s Elements that I worked on for most of the Spring and Summer. I had the good fortune to be able to finalize and install it in a private collector’s home in August, driving the finished work with John from Austin to Santa Fe through the enchanting Southwest. Over the years, I’ve developed a special relationship with this collector, so I feel this was more of a collaborative project than just art for hire. She envisioned earth’s elements, “Earth, Wind, Fire and Water”, as could be translated through my work. In a sense, I became the conduit for the original concept and then we developed the complex color palettes together. The pieces were custom made on Claybord to fit the space, 36”x72” and 42”x72”; all these gorgeous panels were made by Ampersand, in Buda, TX. This project was a real thrill for me to work on and I am very happy with the end result. I hope you enjoy the video and sneak peak at this beautiful Santa Fe home. What a wild summer adventure this was!
